So their plan is get the game cancelled and rearranged for a date when Casemiro and any other panic buys are eligible.

United are bottom for a reason.  Expect them to come out huffing and puffing but despite our poor start I cant see anything other than 3 points.

What are we expecting line up wise tomorrow?

Alisson
TAA Gomez VVD Robertson
Elliott Fabinho Henderson
Salah Bobby Diaz

The only thing I can see is doing differently is maybe Naby for Elliott but then again Elliott was our best midfielder last game and Henderson playing as an advance midfielder or on the left has rather disappointing but then again weve got no other choices.

Surely we are due to score first,  arent we....
One of the 'expert's' have Phillips along side VVD.
If we play at the right tempo and take our chances I would expect us to win by a couple.  A steamroller performance would be nice but as others have said any 3 points will do.

I think this but with Naby.

Slightly concerned about the chat coming from his camp and him not making it off the bench last week but he had a brilliant game against these last year at their ground. Think he could find himself pressing, enjoying turnovers and being progressive if we can revert to basics a little and exert some control on the game.

People have said it here, but we really need to push for that first goal. How this fixture is set up in terms of their protests and their backs already being against the wall after 2 defeats, I think the first goal is important for us here. The game opens up massively and players like Firmino, Keita and maybe Diaz could have the opportunity to work areas where they are deadly in.

But we have been so poor in both games. Its not being a bed wetter or shithouse, we have been miles off. And this is either the best or worst fixture for us. Best in terms of having a massive game to really turn our focus or worst because its them, there in a rough patch for us. But they have been worse than us. And I am backing the mentality monsters to react and start their season properly.

Would bite your hand off for a 1-0 win. Maybe even a 0-3 in a postponed fixture haha!

They should use the UEFA method of simply awarding 3 points with a 3:0 scoreline then fine them.







I'll take the 3 points but my heart says I'd love to see us beat them, even moreso in front of their moaning fans, my head is also whispering to me that, if they play like last week, the standard 0-3 forfeit might be bettered by reality.

I have a feeling he brings in Gomez, Henderson and Keta for Phillips, Milner and Nez. 4-3-3, Salah through the middle and Elliott on the right.

Third game of the season and it already feels must win ;D

If we can play with our usual intensity we will win. There just seems a bit of negativity around the club at the moment with the first couple of results, the injuries and Klopp making a rare comment that edges towards a bit of criticism of the ownership. Praying this season doesn't spiral like the one behind closed doors and we can make sure we're competing again. Huge game tonight even if it wasn't United.

I do think they'll raise their game after all the talk this week. Then again I thought they would do that last season as well.

Shame Darwin is missing as I think we could do with his height and disruption in the box.

I'd definitely start Elliot with Hendo and Fabinho in midfield. Defence should pick itself.

Quick start is needed.

Dunno, maybe we need to start a bit slower. Let them think they can play, and then up the tempo and hit them. The way we are doing it at the moment doesn't seem to work well, we've conveaded first 6 times now! Maybe time to change it a bit?

I think when we go at them hard from the off, they just get their guard up and block everything, then as soon as we run out of steam, they go and score, and then we're back to chasing the game.

My heart wants us to humiliate them, but my head just wants 3 points and no injuries.

That said, how do people see the midfield?

Fab out, Hendo #6 with Naby and Elliot? No Naby, but then either Hendo or Elliot on the left - when they're both best at the right side. Unsure about this..

We should have enough to beat these, despite the injury pile-up. Jurgen will want a reaction, and City dropping points yesterday is extra motivation - not that they need any for Old Trafford.

Ten Hag hasn't had time to implement many improvements, and despite their fans expectations, I suspect we'll see a defensive setup with them hoping for a draw or to nick a winner on the break. Need an early goal or lots of patience, but either way I think we'll be fine. Just get the win, close the gap to City, and kick-start the season from here.

Alisson, Trent, Gomez, Virgil, Robbo, Fabinho, Henderson, Keita, Diaz, Bobby, Salah

Our bench will be a bit light but hopefully we can get a comfortable lead and rotate. Really need to keep everyone fit whilst the others are recovering from injuries. They haven't had a new manager bounce (quite the opposite), and haven't raised their game against us for a while. The protests should also be a nice distraction for them whilst we focus on 3 points and keeping them bottom.
